Am I right in saying nobody knew this was coming.

Yes and you are also right in that missed Miami by a few seconds. But it appears it was smaller then the earlier one. But crap Cuba aint gonna say if there whole damn Island is sinking.

Even though the authorities are telling us the two events are separate, I know that often asteroids have a collection of junk around them (comes from their bumping into each other over the billions of years) that slowly drifts away but remains in loose orbit around the main object.

This seems to me far more likely than pure coincidence.

Yeah, this sounds likely imo..
The Big rock (Da14) was 12 hours after the russian event, give or take.. I don't know the science in it, but the only thing I can think of that might spoil this theory is that Da14 is to small hold any substantial gravity, so it's probably unlikely..

I know we had a very small meteor in Oregon at the same time as the Russian event. Apparently that was a swarm with smaller ones traveling along. It was at the same time moving North to South same as the Russian one. I blame the Mayans.

Its just a local news article. It was a non event as far a meteorites go. Only real info was the time matched the Russian entry and both were traveling North - South...Ill try and relink. It was just a local story.

Lots of damage and injuries,... still, next time (because there will be a next one) maybe we wont be so "lucky".

I still await the compelling Exhibit A.

But the Russia meteor came in at an estimated trajectory that was almost 90 degrees to the trajectory of 2012 DA14 and came towards the earth from the opposite side that 2012 DA14 passed over.

No way that could be an associated object with such a small asteroid (50m) which would have a tiny gravitational force so couldn't have been dragging around an object well over 17,000 miles away and which couldn't have been moving at almost a right angle to it anyway.

It takes very little in space to keep two objects moving together, and the issue would be momentum, not gravity.  As the objects approached the Earth, its gravity would greatly alter the motion of the one coming closest, so it is hard to draw any conclusions from the angles of approach.

Its just that we go for such long periods without anything that dramatic, and then we have them so close to each other.  Coincidence seems a stretch.  That they were traveling on roughly parallel paths, gradually drifting apart seems so much more likely.  I don't know if the computers are powerful enough to trace back how they were moving before they approached the earth.  These computations are fiendish.

Somehow this all reminds me on Carl Sagan and his thoughts. Quote:


"Earth is lovely place. Things changed but slowly. You can lead a full life and never encounter a natural catastrophe more violent then a storm. We become relaxed, unconcerned.  But history of solar system and even in human history there are clear records of extraordinary and devastating catastrophes."
